Values & Aims


  • Wholeness of the person in moral, intellectual, physical and social endeavours.
  • Truth reached in a lifelong process of learning.
  • Excellence as an aspiration for all, in both individual and collaborative pursuits.
  • Respect founded in a deep regard for our common humanity and the unexceptional in each other.


The School’s aim is for every Reptonian to develop into a confident individual and a person of integrity.

The school provides a learning community overseen by experienced and talented members of staff, with the facilities and resources to foster pupils’ lifelong academic, athletic and cultural aspirations. At Repton, pupils will be supported in developing their talents wherever they lie and encouraged to go on to play their part in the global community. This  starts with the development of contacts and friendships amongst the international schools of the Repton Family.

Primacy is placed on academic progress, enrichment and support, but the desirability of achieving qualifications is balanced by the opportunity to be curious and reflective about the oneself and the world. The spirit of excellence sits alongside that of equal participation in the fields of music, drama, art, design and digital technologies and in individual and team sports. Moral foundations, high personal standards, sound character and good manners are valued.
